There have been so many recent tragedies, far away and close to home.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the hopelessness of where the world is going, or get angry at the hate in other people.
But something I have been thinking about lately is how God calls us as the Church to respond.
I believe that God wants us to love, care for, and walk with those that are hurting. To be His hands and feet. To share the Hope that we have in Jesus.
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.
-1 Peter 3:8-9
